Justin Sheedy lives in Sydney where he enjoys in-store signing events for his books, doing radio and press interviews re his writing, also guest author appearances at writers’ festivals around Australia. At such time as his well-received books are picked up by a major publishing company and he becomes indecently wealthy, he will then be able to more fully indulge in his passion for international travel. Until that time he will immerse himself in his (domestic) passions including writing and reading, classic TV & movies, comedy, music, pop culture & aviation, also historical documentaries, Mediterranean cooking, white wine, skiing, mountains and snow. He loves his mum and believes in laughter.
Justin had his first book, Goodbye Crackernight, published in 2009. A laugh-out-loud nostalgic portrait of childhood in 1970s Australia, Goodbye Crackernight was so warmly received by Australian readers that it secured Justin a place on the program of the prestigious Byron Bay Writers’ Festival 2010 and is currently orderable through all bookstores and online. Justin’s second book, Nor the Years Condemn, published in 2011, saw him invited to the Gloucester Writers’ Festival 2012, due to popular demand Book 2 in the trilogy, Ghosts of the Empire, being published in 2013. Justin’s long-awaited sequel to Goodbye Crackernight was published in 2014, Memoirs of a Go-Go Dancer being received with rave reviews. 2016 saw Justin’s books on display at the London Book Fair, his launch of Book 3 in this WWII trilogy, No Greater Love, seven sell-out book-signings in a year at Australia’s premier bookstore, Dymocks Sydney, and his appearance as a guest author at Queensland’s WriteFest 2016. He has begun 2017 with more book-signings at Dymocks Sydney and Chatswood and is looking forward to his appearance as a guest author at Melbourne’s Historical Novel Society Australasia 2017 Conference in September.
